Reader QuestionI want to eat a nutritious breakfast, but I don’t have the time. I have to get up, get the kids ready for their babysitter, take the dog for a walk, and get myself ready for my job. There’s just no time to make breakfast and eat it before I leave. I end up buying a bagel or donut on the run. I know, really unhealthy. Any thoughts? Krista, Fort Lee, NJOur ResponseHi Krista,I get it. There are so many responsibilities to take care of each morning that often eating breakfast is placed very low on our priority list. However, breakfast is absolutely the most important meal and skipping it only leads to consequences later on in the day like low energy, lack of focus, and the slow-down of our metabolism making it harder to burn calories. Here are some solutions to make sure you eat breakfast.1.Get up earlier. You are up early already, but what is 5 more minutes? You can put together a simple breakfast like smearing a banana with peanut butter, eating a container of Greek yogurt with nuts, or a pre-cooked, hard-boiled egg and a piece of fruit. Assemble your breakfast the night before and put it in the refrigerator to save you even more time in the morning.2.Pack breakfast AND lunch. Not enough time for breakfast at home? Then take your breakfast to work with you, just like you would at lunch. Eat at your desk, in the car, during a morning break or whenever you have a few minutes. Prep it at home the night before, or in the morning using the time you’d normally use buying a donut. I always bake healthy muffins on the weekend...these are easy to grab on the run!3.Keep a container of oatmeal at work. I have a friend who always has a container of oatmeal in his office. If he misses breakfast at home, he makes a bowl of oatmeal at work using the microwave in the break room.There you go...no excuses! MariaReader Clinic SubmittalHave an organizing question?
